“Domesecration is the systemic practice of violence in which social animals are enslaved and biologically manipulated, resulting in their objectification, subordination, and oppression.
“Through domesecration, many species of animals that lived on the earth for millions of years, including several species of large, sociable Eurasian mammals, came to be regarded as mere objects, their very existence recognized only in relation to their exploitation as ‘food animals’ or similar socially constructed positions reflecting various forms of exploitation.”
— David. A. Nibert “Animal Oppression & Human Violence: Domesecration, Capitalism and Global Conflict”
I’m currently reading Nibert’s book and wanted to share that quote. I added the images because those came to my mind as I read it.
powerful, sad, and true – we are becoming so distant from actual life that it seems to have no meaning to anyone any more
thank you for this….of crucial impact and importance!
The photos include in this piece would not be considered graphic-but to me they are-such indignity. Sad!
